“Year of the Vaccine” – Plandemic in the Making. 2011 Kickstarted a Campaign to Condition the World to Accepting Worldwide Vaccines

Preparedness 101: Getting the world ready for a global vaccination plan.

Making the case for a zombie apocalypse wasn’t as hard as I thought it’d be. And while that post is still in the making, I had to take this moment to comment on something incredibly unnerving and foreboding, especially in light of what’s been going on around us lately, that I found while researching this possible “zombie apocalypse scenario”.

With figureheads such as the CDC (although, who can forget their complete ineptitude, read: complicity, when it comes to the “coronavirus/vaccine pandemic” – or perhaps EVERYTHING in their history…), the U.S. government/military (again, same thing could apply – even if the majority in the agencies don’t realize it), and other organizations, like Amazon, detailing what it would be like in a zombie apocalypse – it wasn’t too difficult to bring these pieces together.

There are allusions to this incredibly alarming and frightening possibility.

However, this post reveals their ultimate goal whether we’re having a zombie apocalypse, or even a thunderstorm watch. It has nothing to do with being “prepared” but is instead a misdirection to promote, what else?

THE VACCINE.

For instance, taking the CDC to task with their Preparedeness 101: Zombie Apocalypse post, which has now been deleted, by the way (linked article is to the web archived version) – after 10 years of being available – which is strange in itself. (Too much feedback? Misunderstandings on what the post was really about? What was the reason they had to delete this article – isn’t publicity what they wanted?)

And yes, while this information has been available for over 10 years, it’s interesting when connecting that to the details of what’s going on today. For an intriguing look, I took a read into their comic book that they created (yes, they even went so far as to making a comic book about an impending zombie apocalypse…), and selected some key choice words to reflect on:

News report: “Stay in your homes. Do not go outside. If you or your family begin showing symptoms such as slowed movement, slurred speech, or violent behaviors, isolate them to a secure area of the house. Stay tuned for more information on where to go… Stay in your…”

PREPAREDNESS 101: ZOMBIE OUTBREAK Comic Book (pg. 12)

Dr. Chang: “It appears to be a highly mutated form of the flu. They’ve labeled it Z5N1.”

Dr. Greene: “Interesting… do we know what the source is?”

Dr. Chang: “No sir… the field staff are still trying to investigate where it started. But several of them have now become infected. The zombie virus is spreading rapidly infecting 21 people for every infected person.”

Dr. Greene: “All the more reason to get this vaccine made… and fast!”

PREPAREDNESS 101: ZOMBIE OUTBREAK Comic Book (pg. 15/16)

Scientist: “We’re using the same type of vaccine that we use for the seasonal flu… but engineering it to target Z5N1.”

PREPAREDNESS 101: ZOMBIE OUTBREAK Comic Book (pg. 18)

News report: “…CDC shipped out its first supply of vaccines against this novel virus that has been ravaging the nation. The first round should reach safe zones as early as this evening…”

Crowd members: “What?!”

Worker: “Hey folks, the vaccines are on their way!”

Julie (one of the main characters):We’re saved?! I can’t believe it!”

Crowd members: “Vaccines?!”

“Yay!!”

Narration: [“While the shelter erupts in cheers, hugs and tears of relief… outside the school’s protective fence, shadowy figures are closing in…”]

PREPAREDNESS 101: ZOMBIE OUTBREAK Comic Book (pg. 26)

Keep in mind, this is VERBATIM. I am not changing any of the words or punctuation, or bold print.

Health worker: “Alright folks, listen up… at 0600 we start shipping out the first round of vaccine and supplies to the states…

From there the state health departments will divvy up the supplies and take them to the various points of dispensing.

We’ve got a lot of work to do so don’t expect to get any breaks until everyone has been vaccinated. Now let’s move!”

PREPAREDNESS 101: ZOMBIE OUTBREAK Comic Book (pg. 27)

SPOILER ALERT! – The zombie apocalypse scenario was all a dream… based on the spooky scary movie that Todd (main character) watched at the beginning of this comic.

Which obviously begs the question, while the CDC uses this as an example of Emergency Preparedness, even listing a group of items that would be useful in case of emergency, what on EARTH does that have to do with vaccines?

In my opinion, it would have to be obvious to even the most stubborn and hard-headed of people that this whole comic book about “preparedness” was all about endorsing vaccines. Even at the end of the comic, after Todd wakes up from his zombie apocalypse dream, he realizes that a weather emergency truly is on the way and it would be wise to gather important items for an emergency kit.

Even the last page left us with this message:

“We hope you enjoyed reading this fictional story. It’s meant to be both educational and entertaining. Now that you’ve seen the importance of being prepared, take the time to put together an emergency kit with the items included in the checklist on the inside of the back cover. You’ll be ready for any kind of disaster, even zombies.”

So again, I have to ask, what does this have to do with vaccines?

Unless, of course, they’re slyly implying that vaccines will save the day in case of a real zombie apocalypse. Although it would seem, those of us who are astute enough to observe the actions and reactions of the CDC, the W.H.O., NIH, etc. they would most likely BE THE CAUSE of the zombie apocalypse… for the sole reason of introducing a vaccine to us.

If that wasn’t bad enough, on their hurricane guideline article, right after suggesting basic steps to prepare for a hurricane, is the advice to get a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as you can. …

Preparing for a Hurricane

Follow these important hurricane preparedness tips from CDC:

      • Prepare for a hurricane: Take basic steps now to ensure your safety should a storm hit.
      • Get a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as you can. COVID-19 vaccines help protect you from getting sick or severely ill with COVID-19 and may also help protect people around you.
      • Get emergency supplies: Stock your home and your car with supplies. Give yourself more time than usual to prepare your emergency food, water, and medicine supplies. Home delivery is the safest choice for buying disaster supplies; however, that may not be an option for everyone. If in-person shopping is your only choice, take steps to protect your and others’ health when running essential errands.
      • Make a plan: Create a family disaster plan.
      • Prepare to evacuate: Never ignore an evacuation order. Pay attention to local guidance about updated plans for evacuations and shelters, including shelters for your pets.
      • Protect older adults: Understand older adult health and medical concerns.
      • Protect your pets: Ensure your pet’s safety before, during, and after a hurricane.
      • When you check on neighbors and friends, be sure to follow social distancing recommendations (staying at least 6 feet from others) and other CDC recommendations to protect yourself and others.

Now, if there really was a deadly disease outbreak (COVID is not – it has been admitted from several agencies that “COVID” is on par with the common cold and seasonal flu in the majority of people) I would be inclined to agree to protect oneself and their friends/family from it, whether there was an imminent hurricane (or zombie apocalypse) coming or not. However, the unusually high efforts to push vaccines so forcefully has made me reassess that vaccines (perhaps all of them) are nothing more than deliberate poison and/or alternative agenda to inject people with a substance(s) that “they”, for some reason, REALLY want to get into us.

Continuing on with the creepy obvious promotion of vaccines, we have the movie Contagion, also about a respiratory illness and – what else?

Vaccines to save the day.

And, in what’s perhaps an incredible coincidence (it’s not), Contagion also came out in 2011, the same year as the CDC comic Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocalypse.

And for your perusal, here are some interesting lines/events from that film as well, as a brief run through:

SPOILERS for the movie Contagion:

[starts out with a woman coughing – turns out that this woman is cheating on her husband – tactic to make people believe that’s how she got sick?]

[then it pans to the words: “KOWLOON HONG KONG population 2.1 million” – this trope is used throughout the film to show us the population of the various different cities that they cover. Interesting that this would be one of the focal points, seeing as how the globalists are obsessed with population control…]

[@~4:35 into the movie, the CDC makes an appearance. Soon after that, we’re introduced to Alan, the “conspiracy theorist“.]

[Mitch Emhoff, the main character, watches as his wife, Beth Emhoff, and stepson dies.]

[Strangely, Geneva Switzerland does not get a population control monitor.]

[@11:50 into the film, the World Health Organization shows up]

CDC Dr. Erin Mears @17:55: “At this point, I think we have to believe that this is respiratory. Maybe fomites too. … It refers to transmission from surfaces. The average person touches their face 2 or 3,000 times a day. … 3-5 times every waking minute. In between, we’re touching doorknobs, water fountains, elevator buttons, and each other. Those things become fomites.

How fast it multiples depends on a variety of factors. The incubation period. How long a person is contagious. Sometimes people can be contagious without even having symptoms.

Dr. Ian Sussman @21:40: “Shows novel characteristics. It appears to be chimeric in origin.”

Alan: “This is a biological weapon.”

[@22:30, the Department of Homeland Security steps in. Shortly after, the CIA is mentioned.]

DHS worker: “Is there any way that someone can weaponize the bird flu? Is that what we’re looking at?”

CDC Dr. Ellis Cheever: “Someone doesn’t have to weaponize the bird flu. The birds are doing that.”

Dr. Hextall @28:25: “We’re getting the same results as Dr. Sussman. We’ve sequenced the virus and determined its origin and we’ve modeled the way it enters the cells of the lung and the brain. And the virus contains both bat and pig sequences.

Somewhere in the world, the wrong pig met up with the wrong bat.

CDC Dr. Ellis Cheever: “You ever seen anything like this before?”

Dr. Hextall: “No. And… it’s still changing. It’s figuring us out faster than we’re figuring it out.”

CDC Dr. Erin Mears @39:14:FEMA can handle food in the basement.” [@40:00 – Minnesota Army National Guard Armory building to be used as an Emergency Operation and Readiness Center]

[@51:50 – Dr. Leonora Orantes (who works at the W.H.O.) gets kidnapped by a Chinese group that is holding her hostage until a cure is ready in order to trade her for the cure for his village]

[@54:30 – Alan, the “conspiracy theoriest” blogger/journalist, is working to convince his viewers that Forsythia (early treatment medicine) will work against the virus.]

Dr. Ellis Cheever @ 55:26: “I mean, we’re just putting healthy people next to sick people and hoping that the healthy people don’t get sick. It’s ridiculous.”

[@58:15 – Panic and chaos erupt as people rush to get the limited supply of Forsythia. Film shows the city decimated with smoke and fire and stores/buildings are destroyed and looted. Editor’s note: clearly depicting a world that the globalists are hoping for in order to justify their “new world order”. ]

[@1:00:55 – Alan is leaving flyers around that say:

THE CDC LIES. THEY COLLABORATE WITH PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES. THERE IS A CURE.  TO EFFECTIVELY TREAT MEV-1. FORSYTHIA IS A NATURAL AND SAFE THERAPY. DON’T LET THE GOVERNMENT MISLEAD YOU IN ORDER TO GAIN A PROFIT. JOIN THE MOVEMENT AND SPREAD THE WORD OF HOPE.]

[@1:03:40 – We are “treated” to a dialogue between the CDC’s Dr. Cheever and CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta, as well as Alan.

Sanjay Gupta: “Alan, today on Twitter you wrote that the truth about this virus is being kept from the world by the CDC, by the World Health Organization, to allow friends of the current administration to benefit from it, both financially and physically.

On your blog, you also wrote that the World Health Organization is somehow in bed with pharmaceutical companies?”

Alan: “Because they are. That’s who stands to gain from this. They’re working hand in glove. And the hand is reaching into our pocket.”

Dr. Cheever: “We’re working very hard to find out where this virus came from. To treat it, and to vaccinate against it if we can.” [Editor’s note: this was not the first time that a vaccine was mentioned in this film]

Dr. Hextall @1:07:58: “It’s mutated. It’s moved into an African HIV/AIDS population.”

Huh. Interesting. It’s almost as if this film is a blue-print for everything that COVID will eventually entail. Again, not a coincidence… Moving on:

Oh, but first, a number that the “elites” love to display, and also tied in with the vaccines:

Still image from the film Contagion (2011)

Dr. Cheever @1:08:30: “I thought you said that once we grow it we can vaccinate against it?”

Dr. Hextall: “We tried using dead virus, combined with several adjuvants to boost immune response.”

Dr. Cheever: “And?”

Dr. Hextall: “No protective antibodies. A lot of dead monkeys.

Now we have to try a live attenuated virus. … The only danger with live virus is the possibility that it will revert to wild type and kill the host.”

Dr. Cheever @1:09:18: “Without a vaccine, we can anticipate that approximately 1 in 12 people on the planet will contract the disease.”

[@1:10:55 – Another chaotic outbreak ensues as a military officer announces they have exhausted their supply of MREs for that day.]

Dr. Cheever @1:15:12: “Well, Homeland Security wants to know if we can put a vaccination in the water supply. Like… fluoride – cure everyone all at once.”

[Dr. Hextall does not answer this question. Says that she is going home.]

[@1:18:10 – The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) is mentioned as the agency to “accelerate approval” of the vaccines which has finally been found by Dr. Hextall]

[@1:22:20 – Alan is arrested for spreading misinformation and impeding the health/government agency’s efforts]

RADM (Rear Admiral) Haggerty @1:22:40: We may never know where this disease came from, but we do know that this vaccine is the result of the courage and perseverance of a remarkable few.”

Mitch Emhoff @1:24:58: It’s gonna start getting normal again.”

[@1:28:30 – Dr. Leonora Orantes is traded for the vaccines for the Chinese village, but it’s revealed that the vaccines are a placebo. Dr. Orantes leaves her “rescuer” – clearly perturbed by the situation.]

[@1:30:00 – Mitch Emhoff shows his vaccination and/or immunity status by a bright orange wrist band with a UPC (Universal Product code) barcode on it in order to get into a mall.]

[@1:30:20 – It is insinuated that Alan, the “conspiracy theorist” journalist made up the early treatment cure for money.
Officer French:
“And now you want to tell people not to get vaccinated when that’s the best chance they got.”]

[@1:35:50 – Shows Dr. Hextall at the CDC lab adding what appears to be the MEV-1 culture to a container that has both the SARS and H1N1 culture.]

[@1:40:25 – Right before the end of the movie, we see a flashback of how the “virus” all started. Starting with a tree which is torn down by the very same company that Beth Emhoff worked at; releasing a group of bats. One of the bats takes a bite out of a banana, which subsequently drops a piece of it into a pig pen. (…I think we can see where this is going…) A pig happens to eat it, which is then selected as the prize token for a restaurant to butcher and serve to its patrons.

While this is happening, the chef, who has just handled raw pork – from obviously the same pig that ate the bat infested banana… – shakes hands with Beth Emhoff after brusquely wiping his hands on his apron.

The end.

Whew. Just when you thought they wouldn’t trace the virus back to bats and/or pigs, this movie managed to do it within the last minute.

As you can see, the whole movie was just one, large propaganda piece to market vaccines as the end all-be-all. Even casting a large shadow on alternative media and other data as a hypocritical means to exploit people at their most vulnerable, while at the same time absolving any government agency of complicity and tying it all back together to bats.

Basically, to sum this movie up in one sentence, “A multi-million dollar, 1 hour and 45 minute promotional ad to paint the CDC, WHO, and other government/health agencies as the unsung heroes of our age while peddling the vaccines as the savior of mankind.”

One can, of course, argue that they were going for realism, and since Mr. Sanjay Gupta also had a cameo appearance in this film, I feel it prudent to once again bring up his interview with Mr. Bill Gates, ALSO CONDUCTED IN 2011, talking about the Year of the Vaccines, which would be 2021 – according to this snippet:

Sanjay Gupta: “10 billion dollars over the next ten years to make it the year of the vaccines… what, what does that mean exactly?

Bill Gates: “Well, over this decade, uh, we believe unbelievable progress can be made, both inventing new vaccines and making sure they get out to all the children who need them. Uh, we can cut the number of children who die every year from about 9 million to half of that uh, if we have success on it. The benefits are in terms of reducing sickness, reducing the population growth; it really allows a society a chance to take care of itself, uh, once you’ve made the intervention.

“Realism” indeed. Or planned out specifically to condition people to accepting a worldwide vaccine.

And because I watched the WHOLE movie (much to my chagrin), credits included, I noticed this little addition: “IN ASSOCIATION WITH PARTICIPANT MEDIA“. [Los Angeles, California-based film production company founded in 2004 by Jeffrey Skoll, dedicated to entertainment intended to spur social change. – wiki]

And who funds/grants Participant Media?

Oh Bill Gates. You never let us down.

There was also special thanks to the CDC, the United States Department of Defense, and California/Illinois/Georgia National Guards.

They also have this lovely warning: “IT’S NOT IF, BUT WHEN.

And to make matters even worse, a 2011 Forbes article titled “With Vaccines, Bill Gates Changes the World Again“, used the following for its web address: [ https://www.forbes.com/sites/matthewherper/2011/11/02/the-second-coming-of-bill-gates/?sh=692eb8dc13fd ]

(No. Just, no.)

Some interesting information and opinion pieces from that article:

GAVI set out to do things differently in two ways. First, buy-in: It forced ­developing countries to cofinance vaccination programs, even at the nominal amount of 20 cents a dose. And second, accountability: It required clear record-keeping to ensure the vaccines were getting to children and to establish a sustainable delivery system.

“The blogosphere still expels dark plumes of “I Hate Bill Gates” posts and websites, accusing him of bilking taxpayers because Seattle granted him free land to build the new campus or spreading autism through vaccines (now a widely discredited theory) or of playing God through his foundation. Some clinicians criticize him, wistfully, for fixating on vaccines to the exclusion of other medical causes. But for someone once pilloried as the Antichrist of technology, a brutal monopolist who strangled innovation, this generosity—less of the heart than the head—has made him a saint among those most familiar with his efforts.”

With Vaccines, Bill Gates Changes The World Again (November 2, 2011)

Quite a mixture of words there.

The adulation aside, which is overflowing in the article, there is, of course, the efforts to ridicule any dissenting opinion (or even facts) about vaccine efficacy.

With all of that being said, even if one doesn’t believe that these health agencies and “philanthropists” and government bodies are intentionally doing something drastic to humanity, there has to be SOMEthing within them that is telling them that something is not right with what’s been going on; especially now during the “COVID pandemic”.

There are more and more data showing that the very same agencies that are supposed to be helping to heal people, are in fact introducing the illness to us, in whatever way they can – perhaps through the air, water, foods, flu shots or other injections, drugs, EMF, radiation, etc., and that these vaccines, for whatever reason, are their main goal.

These plans have been decades in the making. We must develop our awareness and knowledge about these attempts, and make informed decisions based on this data. People’s continuous refusal to acknowledge that there are sinister goals of those in high positions throughout several institutions are falling into the trap of “disbelief” and labeling everything as a “conspiracy theory”, just as the C.I.A. has promulgated into society. And because of this disbelief, they are deceived and taken advantage of.

There are conspiracies going on in the world. And sadly, they’re not just theories.

Fact checking is extremely important. I want to reiterate not to take everything at face value; no matter what you read, where you read it from, or who you hear it from. And to be clear, do not rely on “fact checking” websites to give you accurate information either. These are just as likely, (if not even more likely…), to feed false information and false debunking accounts to manipulate the reader. Please take everything into consideration before adhering to a certain narrative – and always keep your mind open to other possibilities.

VIDEO: NANO-MAN (deep nasal swab tech, radiation, injection tech, Borg assimilation)

A collection of topics that covers the transhumanism agenda and how the COVID vaccines/tests may be one of the catalysts.

I don’t normally post videos without a transcript or references very often (as a matter of fact, I don’t think I’ve ever done it) but I wanted to offer the following video because:

one, it combines much of the information about the COVID/vaccine agenda that I have also been covering on this site (nanotechnology/graphene oxide/5G/artificial intelligence/Great Reset/La Quinta Columna, etc.) –

two, while I am currently working on several different projects at once, I’d still like to present the readers/viewers with important material for further consideration and research –

and three, the video below is admitting that some of the theories he presents is speculation based on the data that he has come across, and to take this as such; instead of believing everything as fact.

With that being said, there are some things that I don’t fully agree with, but I will leave that for everyone to discern for themselves as well. Many of us are simply researching and looking for the truth, and there are bound to be missteps and reassessments, as well as revised or different conclusions.

So like the creator of the video asks, “Take it with a dump truck full of salt and do your own research if you want specifics, or in case my guess is wrong.”

I appreciate this blunt honesty instead of remaining resolute in their assessment that everything they’re saying is completely factual and true. Because the truth, at least from what I can see, has been hidden and deliberately surrounded with deception and misinformation.

And because some of the content in the video contains disturbing material, I feel it necessary to add a WARNING for some graphic imagery.

Thank you to the bitchute channel Spacebusters for compiling all of this data and for his time and effort going into all of this research to share with the viewers.

And, because I still can’t leave without at least referring to some websites and individuals who have accumulated and/or shared crucial information, I’d like to leave the following links for further consideration that the uploader has mentioned in his video.

Dr. Haruo Ozaki of the Tokyo Medical Association on Ivermectin: “It looks like we’re blocking supply because we believe it’s going to work.”

Why would a drug be blocked if it’s believed to cure an illness?

After researching some information on Japan’s recall of over 1.6 million doses of the Moderna vaccine due to possible metal contamination, I went investigating further and found some conflicting information involving Chairman of the Tokyo Medical Association, Dr. Haruo Ozaki, and the Ivermectin situation.

Many websites are reporting that Dr. Haruo Ozaki came out in a press conference this month (August 2021) suggesting the use of Ivermectin in a now widely shared video.

However, this is incorrect. In actuality, Dr. Haruo Ozaki made this announcement in February 2021.

Here is the video with provided transcript thanks to the subtitles that were added:

If this video no longer exists, please let me know and I will find an alternative. Thank you.

“In Africa, if we compare countries distributing ivermectin once a year with countries which do not give ivermectin, I mean, they don’t give ivermectin to prevent COVID, but to prevent parasitic diseases. But anyway, if we look at COVID numbers in countries that give ivermectin, the number of cases is 134.4 per 100,000 and the number of death is 2.2 per 100,000. 

Now African countries which do not distribute Ivermectin: 950.6 cases per 100,000 and 29.3 deaths per 100,000.

I believe the difference is clear.

Of course, one cannot conclude that ivermectin is effective only on the basis of these figures, but when we have all these elements, we cannot say that ivermectin is absolutely not effective, at least not me.

We can do other studies to confirm its efficacy, but we are in a crisis situation. With regard to the use of ivermectin, it is obviously necessary to obtain the informed consent of the patients, and I think we’re in a situation where we can afford to give them this treatment.” – Dr. Haruo Ozaki

Now with that cleared up, I want to bring attention to a more recent report that did come out in August 2021 (allegedly), from a Japanese website: yomiuri.co.jp

The following will be a translated version using this service: translate.com
I have provided a copy/pasted format for search capabilities. Viewing would be easier in desktop/tablet mode. For those on mobile, the Japanese text will be shown first, followed by the translation in English. Please keep in mind that since this is using a translation website, there may be inaccuracies and missing context.

Lastly, I want to point out that I personally do not agree with every assessment made in the following account; such as, “there is a potent delta strain going around”, or so forth. I think these notions are embellished news stories to give the illusion that the virus is deadlier and harder to contain, just to push for a worldwide vaccine effort. However, there are still many intelligent/educated individuals who are not yet fully aware of this agenda, but are waking up to the realization that something is not right with the vaccine push and the suppression of actual treatments that are working against several known illnesses. If Ivermectin is acknowledged to be beneficial in combatting respiratory viruses, then it concludes that it could be helpful in treating coronaviruses that would also involve the common cold/flu/influenza/pneumonia/COVID/SARS, etc.

It therefore goes without saying, that a cheap, effective wonder drug capable of treating such illnesses and other known diseases would be a pharmaceutical’s worst nightmare that would ultimately hurt their own pockets as well as that of the medical/health industry, and any stakeholders who share in their profits.

So with that out of the way, here is a current, updated account of what the President of the Tokyo Medical Association has to say about Ivermectin. All quotes in italics are by Dr. Haruo Ozaki.

The below image is a screenshot of the first page of the Japanese website:

Some embellishment has been added for emphasis:

「今こそイベルメクチンを使え」東京都医師会の尾崎治夫会長が語ったその効能

POINT
■イベルメクチンが新型コロナの予防にも治療にも効果があるという論文が相次いで発表されているが、すでに「使用国」とされている日本では使用が進んでいない。

■感染爆発が進む今こそ使用すべきだが、使おうにもイベルメクチンがない、政府の副作用被害救済制度の対象になっていないなどの課題がある。

■日本版EUAを早く整備して、現場の医師が使用できる体制になれば、自宅待機や療養の患者にも投与できる。政府は積極的に使用促進に取り組むべきだ。

“Use ivermectin now,” said Haruo Ozaki, president of the Tokyo Medical Association

POINT
A series of papers have been published that ivermectin is effective in preventing and treating the new corona, but its use has not progressed in Japan, which is already considered a “country of use”.

■ It should be used only now when the infection explosion progresses, but there are issues such as the absence of ivermectin even if it is used, and the fact that it is not subject to the government’s side effect damage relief system.

■ If the Japanese version of EUA is developed as soon as possible so that doctors in the field can use it, it can be administered to patients who are staying at home or recuperating. The government should actively promote its use.

During the Tokyo Olympics, delta strains originating in India are raging and the spread of infected people continues. Why does Japan not try to use ivermectin, which has been reported to be effective in clinical trials in other countries with few reports of side effects?

On August 5, I interviewed Mr. Ozaki, president of the Tokyo Metropolitan Medical Association, who had been proposing effective use of ivermectin from an early age.

――第5波ともいわれる今回の爆発的な感染拡大は、まだ右肩上がりが続いているようです。自宅待機・療養者が急増していますが、東京都医師会はどのように対応していますか。

「1月の第3波で自宅待機、療養の人が急増したとき、これではダメだということになって、24時間支援を目標に東京都と東京都医師会が一緒になって体制構築に取り組み、47地区医師会のうち37まで対応できるまでになりました。ところが、毎日1000人を超える自宅療養者が積みあがる今の状況は、限界を超えています。診療所の医師は、一般診療、ワクチン接種、健康診断、往診などで手が回らない。いま、保健所が入院調整をしています。東京都には入院調整センターもありますが、急変したコロナ患者を迅速に受け入れて治療できる体制が確立されるところまではいっていません」

The peak of the spread of infection that has not yet been seen

―― This explosive spread, also known as the fifth wave, seems to be still rising. The number of people staying at home and recuperating is increasing rapidly, but how is the Tokyo Medical Association responding?

“When the number of people staying at home and recuperating increased rapidly in the third wave in January, this was not enough, and the Tokyo Metropolitan Government and the Tokyo Medical Association worked together to build a system with the goal of 24-hour support, and we were able to respond to up to 37 of the 47 district medical associations. However, the current situation where more than 1,000 home care persons are accumulated every day is over the limit. Doctors at clinics are available for general medical care, vaccinations, medical examinations, house contacts, etc. The public health center is adjusting hospitalization now. There is also an inpatient coordination center in Tokyo, but we are not well into establishing a system that can quickly accept and treat corona patients who have suddenly changed.”

多くの臨床試験結果は「予防にも治療にも効果」

――これまで世界で発表されているイベルメクチンの臨床試験の論文を読むと、予防にも治療にも効いている例が多数出ています。

「中南米、アジアなどを中心にイベルメクチンがコロナの予防・治療に効いているという論文が多数出ていることは承知しています。次々と発症する患者の対応に迫られるが有効な治療薬もない。ワクチンは間に合わない。そういう差し迫ったときに、イベルメクチンがコロナに効いているという論文が出ているのだから、これを使ってみようと思うのは臨床医としては当たり前の対応です。医師主導の臨床試験論文が多数出てきたのは、そういう事情があったからです」

Many clinical trial results are “effective for prevention and treatment”

―― Reading the papers of ivermectin clinical trials published around the world, there are many cases that are effective in prevention and treatment.

I am aware that there are many papers that ivermectin is effective in preventing and treating corona, mainly in Latin America and Asia. There is no effective treatment which is pressed for the correspondence of the patient who develops one after another either. The vaccine will not be in time. It is a natural correspondence as a clinician to think that this is used because the thesis that ivermectin works for the corona has come out at such an imminent time. That’s why so many doctor-led clinical trial papers came out.”

――普通は製薬企業が大がかりな臨床試験をして効果を見るのですが、イベルメクチンはオンコセルカ症(河川盲目症)、リンパ系フィラリア症などの熱帯病の特効薬として、世界保健機関(WHO)をはじめ世界中の国々が20年以上前に承認した薬剤です。新型コロナにも効果があるなら適応外だがパンデミックの中で使用しよう、ということになったのはやむを得ないということですね。

 「そうです。パンデミックの医療現場は戦場です。野戦病院と同じです。患者が運び込まれ次々と容態が悪化して亡くなっていく。そのとき副作用もほとんどなく、コロナにも効くという論文が多数出てきたので、これにすがりつくようにして投与する医師の気持ちはよく分かります」

――Usually, pharmaceutical companies conduct large-sized clinical trials to see its effects, but ivermectin is a drug approved more than 20 years ago by the World Health Organization (WHO) and other countries around the world as a special effect of tropical diseases such as oncocelacia (river blindness) and lymphatic filariasis. If the new corona is also effective, it is not adaptable, but it is no use in a pandemic.

“That’s right. The medical field of the pandemic is a battlefield. It is the same as the field hospital. The patient is carried in, and the condition deteriorates one after another and it dies. At that time, there were few side effects, and many papers came out that it works for corona, so I understand the feelings of the doctor who administers it by following this.”

「つい先日、インドでコロナ感染症の治療ガイドラインを決めている全インド医科大学(All India Institute of Medical Sciences/AIIMS)の研究グループが、イベルメクチンの予防効果を調べた論文を発表しています。それによると、約3900人の医療従事者(職員及び学生)を対象に、イベルメクチン体重1キロ当たり0.3ミリ・グラムを3日間隔で2回投与した群、1回のみ投与した群、そして投与しなかった群の三つの群に分けて臨床試験を行った結果、イベルメクチンを2回投与された人は、新型コロナ感染が83%減少したというのです。論文を発表したのは世界でも第一級の研究グループですから、非常に信頼性が高いものです」

“Just recently, a research group from the All Institute of Medical Sciences/AIIMS, which has set guidelines for treating coronal infections in India, published a paper examining the preventive effects of ivermectin. According to the study, about 3,900 healthcare professionals (staff and students) were given 0.3 milligrams per kilo of ivermectin weight twice every three days, administered only once, and in three groups that did not, and those who were given ivermectin twice had an 83% reduction in new corona infections. It’s a very reliable research group because it’s one of the first-class research groups in the world to publish a paper.”

日本はすでに使用国に区分け

――日本では2020年5月18日に通達した「新型コロナウイルス感染症(COVID-19)診療の手引き第2版」から、イベルメクチンをCOVID-19治療に使用することを認めています。世界でも、日本はイベルメクチンの使用国に区分けされています。

「日本では以前から皮膚病の 疥癬 などに、『ストロメクトール』という商品名でイベルメクチンが適応薬として承認されており、改定手引きでは、『適応外』として新型コロナの治療にも承認する通達を出しています。適応外とは、医師と患者の判断で使用してもいいということです。通達を出したころまでに、世界では27か国、36件の臨床試験が行われており、イベルメクチンが予防・治療に効果が出ていると報告されていました。だから厚生労働省も適応外を認めたのです。効果がないと出ていたら通達は出さないでしょう」

Japan has already been classified as a country of use

―― Japan has admitted to using ivermectin for COVID-19 treatment from the “New Coronavirus Infection (COVID-19) Medical Care Guidelines 2nd Edition” announced on May 18, 2020. In the world, Japan is classified as a country where ivermectin is used.

“In Japan, ivermectin has been approved as an indication drug under the product name ‘stromectol’ for scabies for skin diseases, etc., and in the revised guidelines, we have issued a public order to approve the treatment of the new corona as ‘not adapted’.

It is not indication and can be used at the judgment of the doctor and the patient. By the time of the report, 36 clinical trials had been conducted in 27 countries around the world, and it was reported that ivermectin was effective in prevention and treatment. Therefore, the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare also admitted the outside adaptation. If it was ineffective, I wouldn’t get a good by it.”

政府は使用に前向きな国会答弁、しかし…

――国会でも政府はイベルメクチンの使用を進めるような答弁をしています。

「さる2月17日の衆議院予算委員会で、立憲民主党の中島克仁議員がイベルメクチンについて、『国として早期にコロナの治療薬として承認できるように治験に最大限のバックアップをすべきである』との提案を行いました。田村厚生労働大臣は『適応外使用では今でも使用できる。医療機関で服用して自宅待機するという使用法もある』と答弁しています。菅首相は『日本にとって極めて重要な医薬品であると思っているので、最大限努力する』と答弁し、積極的な取り組みを示すような発言でした。しかし現実には(取り組みは)できていません」

The government has responded positively to the use of the Diet, but…

――the government has also responded to the Diet to advance the use of ivermectin.

“At the House of Representatives Budget Committee meeting on February 17, Katsuhito Nakajima, a member of the Constitutional Democratic Party of Japan, proposed that Ivermectin should be backed up to the clinical trial to be approved as a treatment for corona at an early date. Minister of Health, Labour and Welfare Tamura said, “It can still be used for use outside of adaptation. There is also a usage of taking it at a medical institution and staying at home.”

Prime Minister Kan responded, “I believe it is an extremely important drug for Japan, so I will do my utmost,” and made a statement that indicated his proactive efforts. But in reality, we’re not working on it.”

――なぜ、できないのでしょうか?

「私たちも、日本の承認薬を供給する企業とその先にあるアメリカのメルク社がどういう供給体制にあるのか調べました。メルク社は治療薬を開発中であるせいか、イベルメクチンは新型コロナの治療・予防には効かないという見解で、疥癬などの皮膚病以外に使わせないとの意向が働いている。つまり、新型コロナに使うといっても、実際にはメルクが出さなければ国内のイベルメクチン供給には結びつかない。医師がイベルメクチンの処方を書いても、薬局には薬剤がない。これでは事実上使えないことになります」

「しかし、(メルクは)イベルメクチンは効かないと言っているのだから、何も供給を制限する必要はないはずです。効かないなら需要がないのですから。効くと信じているから供給をブロックしているように見えてしまいます」

――Why can’t you do it?

“We also looked at the supply structure of japanese companies that supply approved drugs and merck in the U.S. beyond. Perhaps because Merck is developing therapeutic drugs, the company believes that ivermectin is not effective in treating and preventing the new corona, and the intention is not to use it for anything other than skin diseases such as scabies. In other words, even if it is used for the new corona, it will not actually lead to the supply of ivermectin in Japan if Merck does not put it out. Even if the doctor writes a prescription for ivermectin, the pharmacy does not have the drug. This makes it virtually inable.”

“But [Merck] says ivermectin doesn’t work, so there shouldn’t be any need to limit the supply. If it doesn’t work, there’s no demand. It looks like we’re blocking supply because we believe it’s going to work.”

ジェネリックも普及しない理由は

――イベルメクチンのジェネリック薬品は中国、インドなどでも大量に製造されています。メルクが出さないなら、それを輸入して供給する手段もあるはずです。

「そうです。医師でもある中島議員が中心になって衆議院に提出した『新型インフルエンザ等治療用特定医薬品の指定及び使用に関する特別措置法案』(日本版EUA*整備法案)が成立すれば、ジェネリック製剤も使用できるようになります。しかし、現時点では政府は全く動いていないのではないでしょうか」

Why are generics not popular?

――Ivermectin’s generics are manufactured in large quantities in China, India, and other countries. If Merck doesn’t, there should also be a way to import and supply it.

“Yes, if the “Special Measures Bill on the Designation and Use of Specified Drugs for Treatment of New Influenza” (Japanese version of the EUA* Maintenance Bill) submitted to the House of Representatives, mainly by Mr. Nakajima, who is also a doctor, is enacted, generic formulations will also be available. But at the moment, the government is not moving at all.

「もう一つの問題は、イベルメクチンがすでに世界の多くの国で使われ、用法や用量、安全性・有効性などが確認されているのに、日本ではまだ臨床試験段階でそうはなっていない、ということです。このため、イベルメクチンは医薬品副作用の被害救済制度の対象になっていません。これでは医師は使いにくい。しかし、そういう不安と不利な状況の中でも、イベルメクチンの効果を確信している医師たちの中には、自らの責任でイベルメクチンを処方している医師が出てきています。私は日本版EUA整備法を早く成立させてほしいと願っています」

*EUA(Emergency Use Authorization)緊急時に未承認薬などの使用を許可したり、既承認薬の適応を拡大したりする米食品医薬品局(FDA)の制度。FDAが<1>生命を脅かす疾患である<2>疾患の治療などで一定の有効性が認められる<3>使用した際のメリットが、製品の潜在的なリスクを上回る<4>ほかに疾患を診断、予防、または治療する適当な代替品がない――という条件を満たすと判断した場合に使用が認められる。

“Another problem is that ivermectin has already been used in many countries around the world, and although usage, dosage, safety and efficacy have been confirmed, it has not yet been done in Japan during the clinical trial phase. For this reason, ivermectin is not subject to the drug side effect damage relief system. This makes it difficult for doctors to use it. However, even in such anxiety and adverse situations, some doctors who are convinced of the effect of ivermectin are prescribing ivermectin at their own responsibility. I hope that the Japanese version of the EUA Development Act will be enacted as soon as possible.”

筆者のインタビューに応じる尾崎会長(右) / Chairman Ozaki (right) who responds to an interview with the author
使用国なのに現実には使えない

――適応外を認めたので、世界では日本は「イベルメクチン使用国」に区分けされていますが、現実には使えない体制になっているということですね。

「その通りです。要するに政府はイベルメクチンを供給できる体制も構築せずにいるわけで、推進体制にはなっていない。日本版EUAを早く整備して、現場の医師が使用できる体制になれば、田村厚労大臣が国会で答弁したように、現実的に自宅待機、療養の患者さんにも投与できるわけですが、いまの体制では事実上何もできません。よく『国民の安全のため』と言いますが、このような有事の際にも慎重姿勢を崩さないのでは、国民の安全を犠牲にしているとしか理解のしようがありません」

Even if it is a country of use, it cannot be used in reality.

―― Because it admitted not to adapt, Japan is classified as a “country using ivermectin” in the world, but it is a system that can not be used in reality.

“That’s it. In short, the government does not build a system that can supply ivermectin, so it has not been promoted. If the Japanese version of EUA is developed early and becomes a system that doctors on site can use, it can be administered to patients who are practically staying at home and recuperating, as Minister of Health, Labour and Welfare Tamura answered in the Diet, but virtually nothing can be done with the current system. I often say ‘for the safety of the people’, but if you don’t lose your cautious attitude in the event of such an event, you can only understand that it is at the expense of the safety of the people.”

自ら手を出さない学術現場や研究者

――日本の問題点はほかにもないでしょうか。

「イベルメクチンは大村智博士が発見してノーベル賞までいただいた薬剤です。コロナに本当に効いているかどうか日本が世界に先駆けて取り組む実行力があるべきです。WHOやアメリカの国立衛生研究所(NIH)がコロナへの効果が未確定だとの見解を取り続けていますが、パンデミックの中でこれだけ世界中でイベルメクチンが使われているのですから、科学的なエビデンス(証拠)を得られる臨床試験を国が主導して行い、客観的で納得できるような結論を示せば、日本の研究水準のアップにもつながります」

Academic sites and researchers who do not take their own hands

―― Are there any other problems in Japan?

“Ivermectin is a drug discovered by Dr. Satoshi Omura and received the Nobel Prize. Japan should be the first in the world to be effective in whether corona is really working or not. WHO and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) continue to take the view that the effect on corona is indeterminate, but since ivermectin is used all over the world during the pandemic, if the government conducts clinical trials that can obtain scientific evidence and present objective and convincing conclusions, it will lead to an increase in the level of research in Japan.”

「南米、アジアなどでイベルメクチンがコロナに効いているという結果をアメリカの臨床医師たちのグループ(FLCCC)が発表し、イギリスのイベルメクチン推奨団体(BIRD)などの医師グループは、多くの論文を総合的に分析したメタ解析から『効果あり』を確信し、世界中の医療現場にイベルメクチンを推奨しています。日本オリンピック委員会にも、東京オリンピックの開催にあたってイベルメクチンの有効使用をすべきだと伝えてきましたが、政府は何も対応しませんでした」

 「学術現場の研究者や大学の先生にも問題があります。自らは何もやらないで、WHOのような国際機関や欧米の大きな保健機関が出した『イベルメクチンはコロナに効くかどうかは未確定』という見解を自分たちの見解にしている人が多い。主体的にやらないで、人の意見だけで動いています。どうしてイベルメクチンが効くか効かないか、自分たちで確かめてやろうという気にならないのか。やりもしないで批判ばかりしている評論家や研究者・学者がいるのは嘆かわしいことです。日本のアカデミアはもっと積極的に貢献してほしいと思います」

“A group of Clinical Physicians in the United States (FLCCC) has published the results of ivermectin’s effects on corona in South America, Asia, and other countries, and physician groups such as the Ivermectin Recommended Organization (BIRD) in the United Kingdom are convinced that it is ‘effective’ from a meta-analysis that comprehensively analyzes many papers, and recommends ivermectin to medical settings around the world. The Japanese Olympic Committee has also told us that ivermectin should be used effectively to host the Tokyo Olympics, but the government has not responded to anything.

“There are also problems with academic researchers and university teachers. Many people do not do anything, but take their own view of the view that “whether ivermectin works for corona is indeterminate” issued by international organizations such as WHO and large health organizations in Europe and the United States. Don’t be proactive, we’re moving only on people’s opinions. Why doesn’t we feel like we’re going to see if ivermectin works or not? It is deplorable that there are critics, researchers, and scholars who are criticizing without doing anything. I hope academia in Japan will contribute more actively.”

都医師会は「使用に取り組みたい」

――日本でもようやく、製薬企業大手の興和(コーワ)が主体になった臨床試験が予定されています。どのように対応しますか。

「東京都も医師会もこの臨床試験を積極的に支援・協力する方針です。協力する医療機関などを積極的に探して提供することにしました。外国が開発したワクチンや治療薬に頼っている国ではどうしようもない。自分たちでイベルメクチンのデータをきちんと出し、日本発として重症化や死亡の減少につながる貢献を目指すことがわれわれのやるべきことです」

The Tokyo Medical Association wants to work on its use

— Clinical trials are finally scheduled in Japan led by Kowa, a leading pharmaceutical company. How do you respond?

“The Tokyo Metropolitan Government and the Medical Association will actively support and cooperate in this clinical trial. We have actively searched for and provided medical institutions to cooperate with. We can’t help it in countries that rely on vaccines and therapeutics developed by foreign countries. We need to properly provide ivermectin data ourselves and aim to contribute to the reduction of serious diseases and deaths from Japan.”

――コロナ・パンデミックの体験から日本の医療制度が学ぶべきことは。

「日本の国民皆保険制度のもとで、今回のようなパンデミック有事のときの対応は厳しいことがはっきりしました。民間医療施設は稼働率を精いっぱい高めて効率を上げることで経営しています。そういう中では、今回のように『急激に感染者が増えたから対応せよ』と言われても極めて難しいのです」

「対応策の一例をあげれば、公的医療機関・病院などで1000床くらいの空きベッドを持つ病院を建て、ふだんは研究施設や医師、看護師、検査技師らの研修や訓練機関として運用し、パンデミックが発生した際には医療機関として活用する、という方法があります。スキルを磨いて人材を養成し、パンデミック発生時には育成した人材も投入できる体制にするのです。運用方法を具体化するには課題もあると思いますが、今後、検討・研究すべきだと思います」

――What should the Japanese health care system learn from the corona pandemic experience?

“Under Japan’s national health insurance system, it has become clear that the response in the event of such a pandemic is severe. Private medical facilities are run by increasing the utilization rate to the maximum and increasing efficiency. In such a situation, it is extremely difficult to say that “respond because the number of infected people has increased rapidly” as this time.”

“If you give an example of countermeasures, we will build a hospital with about 1,000 vacant beds in public medical institutions and hospitals, usually operate it as a training and training organization for research facilities, doctors, nurses, laboratory technicians, etc., and use it as a medical institution in the event of a pandemic.  There is a method. We will develop human resources by honing our skills, and in the event of a pandemic, we will be able to bring in the human resources we have developed. I think there are issues to materialize the operation method, but I think we should consider and research it in the future.”

インタビューを終えて

使用に慎重なWHOへの反発も

デルタ株(インド変異株)が、日本の感染者のほぼすべてに置き換わろうとしている状況下で、新型コロナの新規感染者数が日々、過去最高を更新している。

都内の自宅療養者は2万人を超え、全国では7万人を超えている。医師でもある中島克仁衆議院議員は「抗体カクテル療法は有効だが、確保量と体制整備に課題がある。コロナ患者の重症化を防ぐため、早期治療の選択肢を広げることが必要だ」と強調する。その選択肢のひとつがイベルメクチンの投与――というのが尾崎会長を強く動かしていると感じた。

After the interview

There is also a backlash against WHO is cautious about its use.

With Delta (India Mutant) about to replace nearly all of Japan’s infected people, the number of new corona infections is hitting a record high every day.

There are more than 20,000 home recuperators in Tokyo and more than 70,000 nationwide. Katsuhito Nakajima, a member of the House of Representatives who is also a doctor, said, “Antibody cocktail therapy is effective, but there are issues in securing the amount and the system. In order to prevent corona patients from becoming more severe, we need to expand our options for early treatment.” I felt that one of the options was the administration of ivermectin, which strongly moved Chairman Ozaki.

コロナ治療・予防へのイベルメクチンの評価はまだ固まっていない。WHOやNIHなど、世界のメジャーな保健機関は、「世界中の科学者を納得させるだけのエビデンスを示した臨床試験結果は出ていない」という見解を維持している。しかし、「これらの主張は根拠が薄い」と反論する医師グループが米英に多数出てきているのも事実だ。

 重症化して死に至る人も出る中で、世界中の医療現場では日夜、医師たちが懸命に治療に取り組んでいる。感染急拡大期のインドの医療現場は、まさに戦場だった。治療薬も治療機器類も十分でない医療現場では、新型コロナに効いているとの多数の論文を頼りにイベルメクチンが投与され、大きな効果を上げる例が多数出た。

The evaluation of ivermectin for coronal treatment and prevention has not yet been solidified. The world’s major health organizations, such as the WHO and NIH, maintain the view that “no clinical trial results have shown enough evidence to convince scientists around the world.” However, it is also true that a large number of doctor groups have come out in the United States and Britain to counter that “these claims are unfounded”.

Doctors are working hard day and night in medical situations around the world as some people die from serious each other. India’s medical scene during the rapid spread of infection was truly a battleground. In medical sites where there are not enough therapeutic agents and treatment equipment, ivermectin was administered relying on a number of papers that said it was effective for the new corona, and there were many cases that raised a large effect.

インド弁護士会は、WHOがイベルメクチンを治療使用に推奨しないとしているのは「患者を見殺しにする殺人罪に等しい」と激しく批判した文書を作り、テドロス事務局長や主任サイエンティストに送り、その文書を世界に向けて公表している。

イベルメクチンの効果ありとする医師団体がアメリカのFLCCCとイギリスのBIRDである。FLCCCは、世界の613人の科学者(医師・研究者)が2万6398人を対象に行った63件の臨床試験のメタ分析(8月15日現在)の結果をまとめ、以下のように判定している。

▽14件の予防試験において86%の予防効果
▽27件の初期症状治療試験において73%の改善効果
▽22件の重症治療試験において40%の改善効果
▽25件の臨床試験において61%の死亡率低下

 メタ解析した約半数の31件が、世界の臨床試験標準とされ、エビデンスを重視するランダム化比較試験(RCT)であり、ここで60%の改善効果が出ている。尾崎会長は、これを信じて治療にイベルメクチンを使おうとする臨床医がいてもおかしくない、との見解を示している。

The Indian Bar Association has made a document that sharply criticized the WHO’s [indemnity] in its insumping ivermectin for therapeutic use, “equal to murder charges that kill patients,” and sent it to Director-General Tedros and its chief scientist, who published the document to the world.

The doctors’ organizations that have the effect of ivermectin are FLCCC in the United States and BIRD in The United Kingdom.The FLCCC compiled the results of a meta-analysis (as of August 15) of 63 clinical trials conducted by 613 scientists (physicians and researchers) around the world in 26,398 people, and determined as follows:

86% preventive effect in 14 preventive trials , 73% improvement in 27 initial symptom treatment trials , 40% improvement in 22 severe treatment trials – 61% mortality rate decrease in 25 clinical trials

About half of the 31 meta-analyses are global clinical trial standards, and evidence-focused randomized trials (RCTs) have a 60% improvement. Chairman Ozaki shows the opinion that there is a clinician who believes this and tries to use Ivermectin for treatment.

イベルメクチンを否定する主張も根強い

 一方で、コロナ治療・予防にイベルメクチンを使うことに疑問を呈したり、反対する声が根強くあることは事実だ。筆者はイベルメクチン効果なしとする論文を3本読んだが、うち2本は研究者から臨床試験の方法に間違いがあると指摘されたものだ。それ以外に効果なしとする論文はないのではないか。

 確かに、「効果あり」としたエジプトの医師グループの論文が、データが 捏造 された疑いがあると指摘されて撤回されるといった事例もあった。しかし、前述の通り、イベルメクチンが新型コロナに効果ありとする論文の方が圧倒的に多い事実は揺るがない。イベルメクチンには副作用もほとんどなく、ジェネリックが行き渡っていて価格も安い。使ってみようという考えは無謀とはいえない。使用を否定することは、パンデミックへの対応策をつぶすことになりかねないのではないか。

While there are persistent claims that ivermectin is denied, it is true that there are persistent voices questioning or opposing the use of ivermectin for coronal treatment and prevention. I have read three papers that have no ivermectin effect, two of which were pointed out by researchers as erring in the way clinical trials are conducted. There might be no thesis which does not have the effect other than that. 

Indeed, there were cases where papers by egyptian doctors who said they were “effective” were withdrawn because they were pointed out that the data was suspected to have been fabricated. However, as mentioned above, the fact that there are overwhelmingly more papers that Ivermectin is effective for the new corona is unwavering. Ivermectin has few side effects, generics are all over the place, and the price is low. The idea of using it is not reckless. Denying its use could crush responses to pandemics.

日本版EUA法案成立に期待

田村厚生労働大臣は、国会で「適応外使用では今でも使用できる。医療機関で(イベルメクチンを)服用して自宅待機するという使用法もある」と答弁している。これが簡単にできるなら、東京都医師会はわざわざ「イベルメクチンを使用すべきだ」と主張する必要はないはずだ。

尾崎会長は「適応外使用では、副作用などで健康被害があっても救済制度の対象にはならないし、第一、処方してもモノがない」と語っている。ジェネリック製剤が使えるようにならない限り、イベルメクチンは現実的には「いつまでも使えない薬」であり続けてしまう。

その壁を越えるのが、医師でもある立憲民主党の中島克仁衆議院議員らが国会に提出した「日本版EUA整備法案」の成立だ。しかしいま、国会の休会で棚ざらしになったままだ。

Japan’s eua bill is expected to be enacted, and Minister of Health, Labour and Welfare Tamura told the Diet, “It can still be used for use outside of adaptation. There is also a use to take (ivermectin) at a medical institution and stay at home. “If this is easy to do, the Tokyo Medical Association should not have to insist that Ivermectin should be used. 

Chairman Ozaki says, “In non-adaptive use, even if there is a health hazard due to side effects, etc., it is not subject to the relief system, and first, there is no thing even if it prescribes it”. Unless generic formulations become possible, ivermectin will realistically continue to be a “drug that cannot be used forever.” 

Beyond that barrier is the enactment of the “Japanese version of the EUA Development Bill”, which was submitted to the Diet by Katsuhito Nakajima, a member of the House of Representatives of the Constitutional Democratic Party, who is also a doctor. However, it remains shelved by the holiday of the Diet now.

筆頭提案者の中島議員は「この法案を成立させれば、すべて解決します」と言う。疥癬治療薬のイベルメクチンがコロナ治療に使えるようになり、ジェネリック製剤の使用にも道が開け、副作用などの健康被害は救済できるようになる。これなら医師は積極的に処方するようになるだろう、と考えているのだ。

 日本国民全体に対するワクチン接種率は、1回目が約50%、2回目はまだ40%にも届いていない。国内で最大の地域人口を抱える東京都医師会の尾崎会長の最大の懸念は、重症患者を受け入れる医療施設の 逼迫 と、自宅療養者らが重症化して病態が急変することへの対応策だ。尾崎会長の言葉には、緊急にイベルメクチンを使えるようにするしかないという危機感がこもっていた。

 日本で発見されたイベルメクチンは、コロナ・パンデミックの「救世主」となる可能性を秘めている。これまでの世界の臨床試験報告を見ても、全く効かないということはあり得ない。インドをはじめ多くの国が、緊急的にイベルメクチンを投与して感染拡大を抑え込んだ実績がある。緊急時のいま、コロナ感染に使用することに 躊躇 する理由は見当たらない。私はイベルメクチンの活用は、決して「賭け」ではないと確信している。

Mr. Nakajima, the lead proponent, said, “If we pass this bill, we will solve everything.” Ivermectin, a scabies drug, can now be used to treat corona, opening up a path to the use of generic formulations and relief of side effects and other health hazards. They think this will make doctors more aggressive in prescribing it. 

The vaccination rate for the japanese people as a whole has not reached about 50% for the first time and 40% for the second time yet. The biggest concern of Ozaki, president of the Tokyo Medical Association, which has the largest regional population in Japan, is the tightness of medical facilities that accept critically ill patients and measures to prevent home recuperators from becoming more severe and their conditions suddenly changing. Chairman Ozaki’s words expressed a sense of urgency that he had no choice but to be able to use ivermectin urgently. 

Ivermectin found in Japan has the potential to be the “savior” of the coronal pandemic. Looking at the world’s clinical trial reports so far, it is unlikely that it will not work at all. Many countries, including India, have an urgent experience of administering ivermectin to suppress the spread of infection. In an emergency, I see no reason to hesitate to use it for coronal infection. I’m sure the use of ivermectin is never a “bet”.

Profile Mr. Rensei Baba Was born in 1940. After studying at the Yomiuri Shimbun’s Social, Science, and Commentary Departments, he became an editorial board member. After leaving the company, he served as a professor at the Graduate School of Intellectual Property Professionals at Tokyo University of Science, a visiting professor at Waseda University, a visiting researcher at the Institute for Science and Technology Policy of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, and a member of the Council for Science and Technology Policy of the Cabinet Office.

Again, while I do not agree with everything stated in the above interview, I do agree with the consensus that there is a worldwide suppression of this treatment.

It is interesting getting the perspective from those in other countries, especially in contrast (comparison) to that of the United States, for one. The similarities of Dr. Ozaki’s concerns echoing that of several frontline doctors/healthcare workers and virologists with their struggles in getting an already approved medicine in the hands of patients that might need them, is a huge testament to the strange conflict we see between several health organizations recommending and showing benefits of this treatment, to that of the “powerhouse” industries [WHO, NIH, FDA, CDC, etc.] and the various governments that are refusing to acknowledge the ivermectin studies.

As Dr. Ozaki states: “But [Merck] says ivermectin doesn’t work, so there shouldn’t be any need to limit the supply. If it doesn’t work, there’s no demand. It looks like we’re blocking supply because we believe it’s going to work.”

This is rather chilling. It is implying, in not so subtle terms, that the supply of Ivermectin is being blocked ON PURPOSE because “they” think it will work in treating COVID. …This is a speculation that many are having, because to continue to deny the efficacy and safety of a drug that has been used for decades, yet suddenly make the drug harder and harder to access, ESPECIALLY after it was shown to be effective against COVID… Something tells me that it has NOTHING to do with our health.

Please continue to stay informed and keep doing research. Thank you for reading, and thank you to those who are speaking up and voicing your concerns instead of just following along with the establishments. God bless.
